Especially for long time members of RC, let’s start a list of memories directly about Remote Central, from its humble beginnings until.... well, whenever.

What do you remember about RC, the originals, the movers and shakers on here, the changes that Daniel has made over the years, the people who affected you most - good or bad - who may not be on anymore, anything directly related to this web site. It had to have occurred on this web site. And if you can find the link to the actual “event’, all the better. :-)

So, start.

I remember when...
When ignorance is bliss, ‘tis folly to be wise.

Was he the guy with the "awesome" remote control organiser - i.e. a Velcro covered board.

As I recollect more people were interested in the young lady he used to advertise it, but then he's not the only one to use the power of the female form.

it was not conduit, it was just the idea of over wiring homes to the n'th degree (with cables that are now mostly obsolete :) ).

no, but that was hysterical as well.

Wesley's idea was to create a certification for "future proof" homes where there would be "bundled cable" throughout the whole house in insanely large quantities and the bundled cable would include several cat5 and rj6 in it (or something like that) so that they could be terminated with what is needed at the time of use. Everyone was busy telling how ridiculous it is to believe you can future proof a home, wire wise.
